if you spent every second of your life
thinking about your end,
you’d never get much done.
you’ve been told not to live in the past
yet we keep our heads buried in the future.
to live – truly live – we must exist now.
do not fret over past mistakes,
simply learn and become wiser from them.
do not stress over what ifs and possibilities,
the only time you’re guaranteed is this moment;
don’t let it escape.
It felt rough between my fingers.
The edges of it ridged,
the surface had small bumps covering it.
I ran my hand along it,
my fingertips moved over each tiny hill.
“After the war… I’ll still be here.”
“And if I don’t return?”
“Then I suppose I’ll spend the rest of my life waiting.
And you know how I don’t enjoy being kept waiting.”
Slowly, the corners of his […]
Softly the wind lifts her hair from her shoulders,
a light rain hits her face.
Her steady gaze pierces the man in front of her,
‘if looks could kill…’
How do you fix what’s been broken so many […]
It has been SO LONG since visiting here (over a year)! Can’t wait to get started again.
She wore a small black dress
and red pumps.
Her lips were painted a bright, classy red.
Her hair curled and wild.
Her vibrant green eyes shone against her pale skin
under the moonlight & street lamps.
She looked perfect – classic.
You take my form,
I take your hand.
Let’s run away,
Her voice hangs above their heads
like the stars shining in the sky.
His hand travels up and down her back,
trying to soothe her.
Cries are heard,
panic is abrupt.
Raindrops are falling from the sky,
she hugs her coat around her small frame.
The wind blows her hair,
rips her scarf off.
Chasing, she runs runs runs
He catches it
and hands it to her, a light smile playing on his lips.
Grab a pen and write.
Don’t think, just write.
What about? Your day,
your biggest wishes,
Anything to get your creative juices flowing.
You don’t like it?
just start over.
There is no feeling.
I don’t hate him
or love him.
N o t h i n g i s t h e r e anymore.
He took off a week ago.
Now I’m in Ohio
and he’s somewhere down South.
I don’t know what to think of it.
All he left me with
is our memories.
Of us sitting on the beach,
I could her her breathing behind me.
She didn’t know what to do
and she was looking to me now.
Like I would solve all her problems.
This is what happens when you form bonds
and make promises
you can’t keep.
He lay beside me,
holding my hand.
We watched the clouds move around,
like dancers in the sky.
It pains me to say
“Summer is over tomorrow.”
But the truth hurts sometimes.
He holds me closer,
making the pain go away.
